    You mean when you test the map, right? Because the sky will not show in Hammer.

    Did you make a skybox?

    Creat a new brush and go to texture>skybox3d. Its a blue with white lines texture.

    I think you should take a look at this guide. You map must be completely sealed off from the black void. If there are any holes (aka leaks) the map will not work correctly.

    If you want your map to look like it's outside, then just texture the walls and ceiling of your box with the toolsskybox texture. =)

    I'll be home later and i can upload an example. For now..

    go to Textures and put in "tools\toolsskybox"

    Create a LARGE square around your map, bigger then the top and bottom of the map.

    Select your now large brush and go to tools>Hollow or it might be Edit>hollow
    select yes to the 32 brushes. Ta da!

    This is not the "correct" way for a skybox, but it will do for now.

    or just search for a tutorial on it, or prefab if u can't wait.

    If u did it correctly, the game will pick a sky for u when u test it, u can change it later.
